One poem by Dag and Maya


Life’s broken promises
and shattered dreams
a random patchwork
of disillusionment
sewn together year by year
all the plans gone awry
visions washed away
in a sea of bitter tears
fragments of our lives
like children still borne
scattered like so many
fallen leaves, shriveled and dry
that die unfulfilled, forgotten
in a world uncaring
more concerned with games
played upon life’s stage
that treats us all the same
mere pawns upon a chessboard
moved by unseen hands
